The Eagles had a key divisional matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, entering the game as 7.5-point favorites. They had home-field advantage and were looking to stay within one game of the Redskins in the NFC East. In the end, however, the Eagles fell short and took a loss at home to the Cowboys, bringing their record to a lowly 4-5, just half a season removed from winning the Super Bowl.
This was a golden opportunity for the Eagles to make up some ground on the Redskins, who won 16-3 against the Buccaneers to improve to 6-3. The loss brings Philadelphia to two games behind Washington in their division, and the Eagles' next matchup will be a difficult road challenge as they travel to New Orleans to take on the 8-1 Saints.
The Dallas Cowboys were coming off of a short week and just defeated the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles in their house while they themselves were coming off of a bye.— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) November 12, 2018
